This article continues the discussions introduced in the earlier article submitted to The Health Care Manager that is titled Epidemic Simulation for Syndromic Surveillance, where a format for analysis of the incidence of a bioterrorist attack was presented. Part 2 of this series provides a discussion of the observed outcomes from the simulation techniques. This simulation was conducted as part of a federal grant award administered through the Center for Biological Defense at the University of South Florida. The disease entity simulated was an attack of anthrax introduced into the Central Florida region. The spread, effects, and eventual control of the disease entity are highlighted.
